Recommend this place
We really enjoyed the Setsumon. We stayed in a Studio. It was two 30 somethings, and a 12 month old baby. The Studio is one room, but it is big. It has a kitchen, tv, couch, and bed. There is also a long entryway (genkan) so you can put your boots and stuff. We put our baby in the crib in the corridor. It worked well. The Setsumon is very central in Hirafu and easy to get to lifts, shuttles, and convenience stores. We did not go to restaurants, but there were several nearby.

we stayed at a 3bedroom suits, overall the room is very clean and the whole apartment is very spacious. downside is that the front desk only service until 6pm, so when we needed some help from front desk after working hours its a bit inconvenient. con: it has two kitchen and comes with all the kitchenware you need, very nice and convenient. wifi speed is very slow cant even play music with the wifi pro: doesnt come with tooth brush

The Vale - great accommodations
We booked the Setsummon but were moved to the Vale due to a booking issue. We stayed in a studio unit with a full kitchen and a washer dryer. The room had great storage for all our ski gear. Staff were mostly English and Australians and couldn't have been more helpful. The onsen was nice. Breakfast was western and very good. Loved the location - true ski in/ski out.

Cozy hotel in handy location.
Our first of hopefully many stays. A wonderful experience. Lovely, relaxed and helpful English-speaking reception and transport/transfer staff. Fabulous location handy to shops, supermarkets, eateries, ski school, chair lift and Welcome Centre (for coach transfers) which makes it all so much easier when you have (younger) children. Kids loved sifting through the bowls of complimentary wrapped lollies at reception for their favourite flavours - happily encouraged by staff.
